HOUSE NEWS: Climate Change Mitigation and Volunteer Help

For a complete schedule for This Week, click here.

At our first roundtable of the semester this Thursday,  we’re excited to have Lucy Ngapia, a UF doctoral student from Kenya, discuss her work with Kenyan women to mitigate climate change.  Please bring a dish to share if you can and join us from 6-7:30 for an interesting discussion with Lucy.

Also, we especially need help at Dorothy’s Cafe on Wednesday! Please see “this week” for timeslots and a description of work to be done.  Let us know if you can help; we’re trying to schedule folks ahead so we’ll have even coverage throughout the day. You can sign up for any time period that fits your schedule -from one hour to all day long.

Other volunteer opps this week include Breakfast Brigade on Friday and the new Coffee House on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Again, check “this week” for details.

Thanks for all you do help the work of the house go on. So many people came to get blankets, socks, and warm clothes over the last couple weeks, and it was so good to have them!  We’re not sure who brought the hand-crocheted hats (and scarf), but a big thank you for the time you put in to making these beautiful, much-needed items. And thanks, too, for the coffee, tea, and coffee makers.  It is heartening for everyone involved to be able to be able to share what we have with neighbors who need it, and it was particularly sweet to see eyes light up at the bounty shared over the cold snap.
